Deficiency Notice Pursuant to FINRA Rule 6490
Real Estate Contacts,Inc. (REAC) - Case No. CAS-40066-P5G105
Company-Related Notification Relating to Proposed 1:10,000 Reverse Stock Split
Dear Mr . Deangelis:
Pursuant to FINRA Rule 6490, FINRA's Department of Operation s ("Department8) received your request to process documentation related to the above-referenced Company-Related Act ion for Real Estate Contacts, Inc. ("REAC"). This letter hereby notifies you that pursuant to FINRA Rule 6490(d), the Department has determined that such request is deficient and it is necessary for the protection of investors, the public interest, and to maintain fair and orderly markets that documentation related to the above-referenced Company-Related Action will not be processed.
Specifically , the Department's deficiency determination is based on the following factors:
As set forth in FINRA Rule 6490(d)(3)(3), FINRA has ac t ual knowledge that the issuer, associated persons , officers, directors, transfer agent, legal adviser, promoters or other persons connected t o the issuer or the Securities Exchange Act ("SEA") Rule 10b-17 Action or Other Company-Related Action are t he subject of a pending , adjudicated or settled regulatory action or investigation by a federal, state or foreign regulatory agency, or a selfregulatory organi z ation; or a civil or criminal action related to fraud or securities laws violations. Specifically:
FINRA has actual knowledge that REAC issued a convertible note to Typenex Co Investment, LLC ("Typenex " ) . Based on the Schedule 13G/A f i led with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") on January 16, 2016 , "reporting person John M. Fife ("Fife") is the sole shareholder of reporting person JFV Holdings, Inc., which is the sole shareholder of reporting person Red Cliffs Investments Inc . , which is the Manager of reporting person Typenex Co-Investment, LLC." "Typenex has rights, under a Convertible Promissory Note, to own an aggregate number of shares of the Issuer's common stock which, except for a contractual cap on the amount of outstanding shares of the Issuer's common stock that Typenex may own, would exceed such a cap. Typenex's ownership cap is 9.99% of the Issuers outstanding shares. Thus, the number of shares of the Issuer's common stock beneficially owned by Typenex as of the date of the SC 13G/A filing was 101,786,834 shares, whichis 9 . 99% of the 1,018,887,234 shares that were outstanding on that date (as reported in the Issuer's Form 10-Q filed on November 16, 2015)."
The Securities and Exchange Commission ("Commission") announced, in August 2007, a Final Judgment against Defendants Fife, a Chicago resident, and Clarion Management, LLC ("Clarion").The Final Judgment "permanently restrained and enjoined the defendants from future violations of the Section 1O(b) of the Securities Act of 1934 and Rule 1Ob-5 thereunder; required the Defendants, joi ntly and severally, to pay disgorgement in the amount of $234,399, plus prejudgment interest of $60,584; and additionally ordered Fife to pay a civil penalty of $234,399." The Commission's complaint, filed on January 18, 2007, "alleged that defendants engaged in a fraudulent scheme in 2002 and 2003 to purchase variable annuity contracts issued by the Lincoln NationalLife Insurance Company ("Lincoln " ) for Clarion Capital, LP ("Clarion Capital") in order to engage in market timing for the benefit of Clarion Capital,a now-dissolved Chicago hedge fund formed by Fife for the exclusive purpose of engaging in market timing in international mutual funds available through variable annuities . " According to the complaint, Fife controlled both Clarion and Clarion Capital, and carried out the scheme through Clarion, the hedge fund's general partner and unregistered investment adviser. These tactics included using trusts and limited liability companies as nominee contract owners and beneficiaries to conceal Clarion Capital's financial interest in dozens of variable annuity contracts. The complaint further alleged that, through this deception, Fife and Clarion made hundreds of thousands of dollars in profits for themselves at the expense of the other shareholders in the mutual funds. [(See SEC Litigation Release No. 20250/August 21, 2007 . SEC v. John Fife and Clarion Management, LLC, Civil Action No. 07-CV- 347 (N.D. Ill.)]
The above activity involving Fife, as a convertible note holder of REAC shares in the name of Typenex together with the SEC's 2007 Civil Action, has raised concerns for FINRA regarding the protection of investors and the transparency to the marketplace as it relates to the proposed corporate action request. As such, the Department has deemed REAC's corporate action submission to be deficient under FINRA rule 6490(d)(3)(3).
